Does that chapter count say 6/6? YES it does. Does it mean this is the FINAL chapter? It BLOODY WELL does.

And I’m so GODSDAMNED grateful it should be so. (Read: have re-written and edited until my eyes bleed and I can’t see the story from the words anymore and I my most fervent wish is to have nothing to do with it like EVER.)

But here it is. Read. Please.
